Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to say the least. They can be uncomfortable, but what’s worse is that they could point to problems with your heating and cooling system. You may require air conditioner service and Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can try before your appointment.

Hot and cold spots could mean you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it could mean something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. The only thing you have to do is walk through your home and find out if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes in front of one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like needing more cold air return vents, you should consult an expert—whether during a annual air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine the layouts of the rooms that have hot and cold spots. Even if vents aren’t directly blocked, the arrangement of furniture in each room could be preventing continuous airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC to have a professional duct system examination, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you recommendations and help you resolve any issues we identify.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a noticeable improvement to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your troubles with hot and cold spots, but you may see a big improvement once your vents are cleared out.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
